You still get a free betting tip we prepared at the end of the post.
Benfica’s team has not scored points in their 2 Champions League games, which leaves them in 4th place in the table.
Benfica’s team is not well in the league, so in the debut, they were defeated at home by Leipzig 2-1. However, a balanced game was expected, but the team did not take the chances, and their defence failed in crucial moments.
Thus, had the chance to recover against Zenit away from home, but was defeated 3 to 1. Again a balanced game, however, still with errors in defence.
Thus, the team already has few chances of qualification. However, it comes to another problematic game and once again, with the advantage of playing at home.
Lyon, meanwhile, drew at home with Zenit in their first match 1-1. Nevertheless, the team were favourites to win the game but did not impose themselves on the pitch as they should.
Still, they recovered in their last match by beating Leipzig 2-0 away from home. The team played well and took the chances they had in a balanced game.
The team is in a group where practically all clubs could have chances of qualifying. Yet, Lyon remains in the fray and shows good football.
The squad ranks 2nd in their Champions League group with 4 points from 2 matches.
In the prediction Benfica vs Lyon, we once again have a balanced game without a clear favourite before the ball rolls.
However, Benfica has not shown good football, which could make things more favourable to Lyon.
Possibly the goals will be within the average of a regular game, mainly due to the technical difficulties that the hosts have been showing.
Thus, in our free tip, we will bet on a closed game in which teams will start at a slow pace in the match, knowing each other before leaving for the attack.
